In the lower part of this photo, the lime well from the Jackson period and the Jackson floor are visible. To the right is a doorway between the mill proper and the purgery that was sealed during the convict period. Convicts built the wall in the center on top of the Jackson wall; metal bars were used to stabilize the addition. The original kettle settings had to be torn apart to place steam coils around the kettles when the "steam train" method for heating the kettles was implemented. The firebox was removed, and the flue chimney blocked by a wall.
